Besides the game on the 9th there will be this:

https://www.packers.com/news/packers-everywhere-hosting-free-pep-rallies-in-london-2022 

I personally dont have tickets to the game but will be going on the 8th to the Belushi's Sports Bar to look to meet Nick Collins and Mr Mark Murphy. Looks like there will be a 'pep rally' the 6th and the 7th too so potentially could meet up the 6th also.

I live outside london; about an 1.5 hours, so shoot me a message here or private if you are planning on going to the game or want to hook up with a fellow packers fan.

I wish I could go! It would be neat to meet Packer fans across the pond!
I have met Mark Murphy, Leroy Butler and Dave Robinson.
Robinson I'm sure was before your time, but believe me, he's a great guy! I spent a couple hours talking with him, and he let me try on his Super Bowl two ring. (Which he just sold, along with his Super Bowl one ring, for 174 thousand dollars each!)
I hope you have a great time!!!

I have some relatives that will be there.
Every time that they come to visit, they have to go to the Pro Shop to buy Packers gear.
Today they can proudly wear it for the real deal!

As a season ticket holder I was offered a chance to enter the lottery. It is so expensive I declined. Had I entered it appears that I would have "won". One of the stipulations is that I would not be allowed to resell them.
As I get to see them play a couple of times every year, it's best to let fans in England and in Europe in general have the honor. After all that's the target market for NFL Inc and the whole "expand the brand" concept. Interesting side note, my sister in law went to England, Scotland and Ireland earlier this year. She met up with a fellow bares fan. He became a bares fan when they played over there. So it works on a limited basis. His friends and family think he's stupid but he enjoys both versions of football.
Personally I don't like the concept. I can see spending millions of dollars to try and force the growth in popularity. I've never liked the idea of Green Bay giving up a home game even if it's the 9th game or not. If the MUST play in London, let it be as the visiting team. Take it or leave it.
I hope you somehow get the chance to see the game Dulak.

Ya I dont know where I was 'mentally' or what that I missed the chance to buy them and they were all sold out by the time I looked into them. And I refuse to pay scalpers fees on ebay for em. To be honest it really sucks to be here at times - feels like no one is really a fan even thou they may say they are.

I'm actually hoping I can talk to some of these past pro bowl players or Mr Murphy and get a ticket some how :)

See you should of entered the contest and you could of went to the game and you could of stayed with me for free :)

Lots of people that go to nfl games here are not fans they just go for fun ... I had 2 patients last year that went to a game and they barely liked the nfl (barely as in watched zero games) - no idea why youd want to go watch em play in london if you wernt a fan ...

Where are the relatives from? ... england? - I remember I dragged my wife and our new baby (kid in the pic) to a practice in greenbay (it was like in the 90s) and I scoured the pro shop for an all cotten t shirt - was really hard to find one (cant even remember if I did). Cant stand polyester 🙂 - but was a cool shop. oh and I think I did meet up with someone from these forums - but wife was a bit testy with the 90f weather and new baby so I think I was a bit distracted.

Yes, they live in England.
I used to know where but my memory isn't what it used to be.

Don't feel too bad for him! He chose to sell his rings so he would have money to help his kids/grandkids and so he could go do some of the things he always wanted to do. He kept his Hall Of Fame ring.
Leroy Butler almost ran me over with his SUV back right after the Packers won Super Bowl 31. Seriously, had I not had cat like reflexes back then (now I have sloth like reflexes 😁) I would have been road kill.

They spend millions of dollars trying to expand their viewership abroad, but they still can’t come up with a streaming service that offers all of the games live at an affordable price. In 2022. Meanwhile it’s cheaper to watch the games in foreign lands than it is here at home.

dfosterf (44m) : I missed Baker's heroics also. Gonna go watch it now. Someone commented that it was Favre-like
dfosterf (47m) : ...and the pickins' are slim on that wire, even if he does correct his roster
Zero2Cool (49m) : He doesn't log in until Sunday. We'll see what he does. Might have mailed this week in as it doesn't matter to him for playoffs.
dfosterf (53m) : According to VOR by his inaction, Jackson is playing. Everyone else doesn't think so
Zero2Cool (55m) : Baker looked better than I expected him too. Passed out during first half though so I missed the heroics.
Zero2Cool (55m) : When Jacobs got dinged. I saw Adams clutching his hand. I was worried a bit there.
Zero2Cool (59m) : Any update on Lamar Jackson??
Zero2Cool (1h) : You know it! Can't wait!!!
Zero2Cool (1h) : It'll be sweet too. Davante Adams will snare 4.2 points and be reason why I win!
Zero2Cool (1h) : Boom! Pow!! Gonzo!!!
Zero2Cool (1h) : I get to drop the juggernaut of the league.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Then when I get in.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Looks like Sweep might lose so still got some hope.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Akers did OK, but we'll see if Burks gets 9 or more to see how bad a choice that was haha
Zero2Cool (1h) : Are players I should have signed instead of Derek Carr.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Packers
Zero2Cool (1h) : Bay
Zero2Cool (1h) : Green
dfosterf (1h) : The American people are suckers. They are increasing the value of Paul Whelan to Putin as the bargaining chip he holds. Chain Chain Chain...
dfosterf (2h) : He's no Jared Goff
Zero2Cool (3h) : Derek Care. Bad pickup.
buckeyepackfan (12h) : 98 yds, no timeouts, no problem
Zero2Cool (19h) : Rush of 10+ or Reception of 20+. Packers have 86
Zero2Cool (19h) : Only 5 teams have more explosive offensive plays than Packers.
Zero2Cool (19h) : I suppose too if there are any career statistics he wants to aim for himself, or Lewis or Cobb maybe?
Zero2Cool (19h) : UNLESS ... Rodgers is leaning towards retirement and says he'd rather finish his career on the field, not the bench.
Zero2Cool (19h) : I'm wiling to bet once eliminated, we'll see Jordan Love finish out the season.
Zero2Cool (19h) : That's why Rodgers is still playing.
Zero2Cool (19h) : I think he's full of crap. Packers are still hopeful for Playoffs.
Zero2Cool (19h) : He also thinks Seahawks are perfect trading partner to get Love.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Cowherd thinks Packers are hiding Jordan Love.
dfosterf (19h) : Lord of War movie. The planes used in its production were his.
dfosterf (19h) : Merchant of death. Ain al Asad Airbase, Baghdad. US Airforce gave his pilots cards for free fuel when he flew God knows what into Iraq for US contractors. Over 500,000 gallons
Zero2Cool (20h) : I had them nearly full time, but they spent Winter Break with the mom. So I had 7-10 days to get it done without having to hide it
Zero2Cool (20h) : For many years, the girls spent Christmas with their mother's, so I'd get their presents few days after Christmas.
dfosterf (20h) : A lot of activity. Reminds me of one year I had to do all my Christmas shopping an hour before the Kmart closed on Christmas eve, the only store open
Zero2Cool (20h) : K. Walker injury has me concerned. So, had to panic-add RB Akers ...
Zero2Cool (20h) : I just plunked Akers up and started him. Baker at QB, I'm hoping lots of rushing haha. I dunno. Not convinced
dfosterf (20h) : Maybe VOR won't realize he doesn't have a QB, WR and kicker. You'd have a shot this week
dfosterf (21h) : Carr will probably get hurt in the 1st quarter trying to run. ?Statham? can come in and toss to Adams
Zero2Cool (21h) : No Aaron Donald. Hopefully Derek Carr runs for three TD's and throws 2 TD's to WR Hollins
Zero2Cool (21h) : Adams is gonna torch Rams today. I hope for shootout!!
Zero2Cool (21h) : RB Aaron Jones topped 5,000 yards career. Pretty nice!
Zero2Cool (21h) : Folks saying Leonhard is why Rex Ryan defense was so good. He's got the cure for RPO's.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Reading lots of good things about Jim Leonhard.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Seeing some talk that Packers are poised to make post-bye run.
dhazer (21h) : packfan she is a black lesbian that hates america, it checks all the boxes for a democrat
Zero2Cool (22h) : Keisean Nixon makes PFF’s third-quarter All-Pro team
Zero2Cool (22h) : Only thing I've seen is that we brought back someone from WNBA while we have a former Marine hitting four years.
Zero2Cool (22h) : Haven't seen media call Paul a hero, not once.
